Good if you like accordions.

Subject: Best damn show
One of the best live shows in 10 years. Kevin and the boys are absolutely on fire and the music quality of the recording if pretty good.

Best Gourds show I've heard in a while. They were having a ball and it shows!

Subject: nice stuff
Great-sounding show.

Until we get an official live release of a Gourds show, this one will tide us over. It sounds that good, and that the band was also having a lot of fun.

Subject: F*ck! What a set!!!
I'll just get right to the point: This is the BEST combo of song choice, performance, stage banter, crowd participation, and recording quality that I've ever heard from The Gourds.

[Soundcheck] Begins with a few Whippoorwill calls and includes teases or partial versions of Old Folks at Home (Stephen Foster), Frosty the Snowman (Jack Rollins/Steve Nelson), Those Were the Days (Lee Adams/Charles Strouse), Aqualung (Ian Anderson/Jennie Anderson), Crazy Train (Ozzy Osbourne/Randy Rhoads/Bob Daisley), and Sweet Jane (Lou Reed).

*Claude played the melody from Chinese Variety Hour (Claude Bernard/Matt Cook/Travis Garaffa) on his guitar at two different times during this medly & soundman Mark Creaney joined them on acoustic guitar just before Surrender

**Unplugged version. As the band came back for the encore, their soundman told them the PA system had to be turned off. Since they had already put their guitars back on, they decided to continue without power. To be able to hear everything, "the crowd got deathly quiet". On All the Labor, "Jimmy stood out in the front of the stage and belted it out, almost a cappella" (K. Langford, personal communication, October 21, 2009). "The total silence as Jimmy sang was magical...Late night, cold with smoke and ash from the fires drifting over us. We were like gypsies" (K. Russell, personal communication, October 21, 2009).

Note: Tracks 26 and 27 were taken from a separate audience recording.
